Save a Report with your Project
Quick reports may be generated in a variety of ways. If you close your report, or create a new report this type of report is "lost" (you may always re-create it the way you did originally). However if you edit a quick report or give it a name, it will be automatically saved with your project file! When you re-open your project file you will be able to access it by name from the Command Bar, when the Report View is active. It is a good idea to give these reports a nice name that will make sense to you.
Please note: The report's data is not saved, just a template (organization, filters, and format) of the report! When you recreate a project report the data is pulled "live" from your model, loads and analysis results. If you wish to save the data from a particular model or analysis run permanently you should print it, or save the report as a separate file!
Save a Report as a New Style

Delete a Saved Project Report
